Nigeria: Buhari's Visit Vindicates Kano People - Kwankwaso

Kano — Kano State Commissioner for Special Duties Alhaji Musa Ilyasu Kwankwaso, yesterday said that President Muhammadu Buhari's two-day official visit to Kano State was a clear indication that the APC administration at both national and state levels is working.

This was contained in a statement signed by his media aide, Idris Abubakar and distributed to newsmen in Kano.

The statement added that the success of the visit has vividly indicated Kano people's confidence in President Buhari and Governor Abdullahi Umar Ganduje.

The statement further commended the people of Kano State for their total support as they massively turned out to receive the president and also for their show of maturity.

Similarly, the commissioner's statement described the state's former governor, Rabiu Musa Kwankwaso's absence at the event as a confirmation of his planned moves against the president and the APC.

"All the senators representing the state were present except Kwankwaso which confirms insinuations of his imminent but ill-advised shift to the PDP," the commissioner said in the statement.

The commissioner in the statement, urged the people to continue to support the state government so as to continue enjoying facilities such as the Women and Children Hospitals which the president commissioned at Giginyu and Zoo Road.
